Help me find sources for wool jersey

EmerlyeArts | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

I read with delight the recent article on making “felted” items using wool jersey. Since I live in a remote area, with no local sources of 100% wool fabric, I have been searching the web for fabric sources of white or uncolored wool jersey so I can dye things myself and make up some felted jackets. I am having a terrible time finding sources. I haven’t found a single one for white. Can anyone help me?

    Fabric Mart has some wool jerseys that have received much praise at http://www.sewingworld.com

    You can call Paron Fabrics and have them send samples.  They have several locations.  I usually ask for Lucy at the 57th st. store.  They have a nice selection of jerseys and send really big samples.  Also Mood has a huge selection of wool jerseys I was there in August but, not looking for white I can't say for certain if they have white.

      Paron's store on 57th Street is closed.  Lucy is now at the store on 40th Street.  She is indeed worth asking for.

        Thanks for the info on Paron.  I was just in the City and at Paron on 40th but didnt' realize that they had closed 57th street.  I bought a thin wale stretch cordoroy in tan and black for $6 a yd at the half price store.  also stretch wool gab that is really amazing quality.
